DIFFERENCE AVALANCHE BACKPACK AND SKI BACKPACK
When do you need an avalanche backpack and when is the ski backpack sufficient? The essential difference is the airbag system. While ski backpacks are specially designed for secured terrain, an avalanche backpack is for adventures in open terrain. There you are as soon as you leave the marked routes, which can already be right next to the piste. In open terrain you are exposed to alpine dangers and avalanches can occur at any time. For this reason it is recommended to always have an avalanche backpack with emergency equipment in the so-called backcountry. Even if an avalanche backpack cannot prevent an avalanche, it still helps to keep you on the surface of the snow masses. In ski resorts, the approved slopes are specially prepared and checked for safe skiing. Therefore the risk of an avalanche is very low. However, an avalanche can also occur on the slopes next to the pistes. With the ABS A.CROSS ski backpack you are perfectly equipped for any incident, even in secured terrain.
